challenges and difficulties
Lucy Lee has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Lee knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Lucy Lee may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Lucy must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Lucy Lee works very hard to ensure that her assets are solid. She may be very conservative, even stingy with her money because she is afraid there will not be enough. She may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Lucy Lee strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
She is likely to have very intense experiences in her emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Lucy Lee may be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Lucy Lee may often be coerced into doing things that she does not want to do, leaving her frustrated, irritable and touchy. Lucy could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lucy Lee instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Lucy Lee needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Lucy Lee's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Lee's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Lucy Lee is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Lucy should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Lucy Lee can offer the world at large.
It is in her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Lucy Lee between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Lucy Lee seesaws between being inordinately concerned with her self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about her. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Lee's task.
The following are specific activities that will support Lucy Lee in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lee, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Lucy Lee should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. She needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with her family or a community that can support her and give her a sense of safety and belonging.
Lucy Lee should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Lucy Lee has to learn to trust her own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. She needs to care for herself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Lucy Lee's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from her past and use it in a new way. (If she is so inclined, Lucy may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
She is very social and her relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for Lucy's emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and she is an active member of groups or associations she belongs to.
